Rings and engraved gems; 6. Armlets and torques; 7. Miscellaneous small objects; B. Other Objects from Ancient Persia and India. 1. Silver vessels from Armenia; 2. Silver vessels of the Sassanian period; 3. Miscellaneous objects. Includes plates, illustrations, and a map in 219 pdf pages. Book digitized by Google and uploaded by user Robert Bedrosian.
